I have always wanted a small, long lasting project and was looking more on the fiesta side of cars. but i found this one not too far and cheap IMO. Wanted to know what you all think of it.
Its here in France so here is the link to it:
I have contacted the seller and waiting for an answer. He says he is selling it with all the stuff needed to repair it, there is a broken gear box and holes in the side skirts. From whats written in the add. I asked him if he has a second gear box since he does say he gives all thats needed to repair it.
For 400€ i don't think its too bad. But i havent seen it yet. (If he answers i might arrange to see it, a must before buying anyways)
So on to the "me" side of things;
I'm 23 and don't know alot about cars, nor have i ever tried to restore one before. I'm thinking this would be a cool project to take on and not too pricey to start of with (by this i mean getting it clean and running). I have never changed a gearbox, nor welded or fild in any rust holes and such but i'm willing to learn and i think this could be fun.
This is a dumb question but would the engin work fine without the gear box working? I guess i just couldnt select a gear but the engin oculd still turn on and off like normal.
This i guess could be good information for any other restoration project =)
So now what i would like to know is what are the things i have too look out for if i go see this car? So that i don't run into major problems?
